From Partido Reporma Spokesperson Ashley Acedillo: There is an ongoing misinformation campaign claiming allegedly that Senator Panfilo Lacson has or is withdrawing his candidacy for President in the May 2022 elections.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
On the contrary, the Lacson-Sotto tandem has been full speed ahead and has only been growing from strength to strength.
After launching their respective candidacies for President and Vice President on September 8, 2021, both putative candidates have been laying the groundwork and have demonstrated, this early, that among those running for the top two highest elected positions of the land, they are the most prepared and the most capable to lead this country.
The latest Partido Reporma event in Tagum City, Davao del Norte where Party Chairman Ping Lacson and his running mate, Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III were present, saw more than two hundred party members taking their oaths of membership and expressing their solid support to the tandem in behalf of the entire province.
While the others are still deciding whether or not to run, or hurriedly negotiating for their runningmates, or worse, still, looking for a party to run under, Senators Lacson and Sotto and their respective parties have already mobilized the combined strength of their alliance to secure their bases of support.
As the filing of candidacies nears, so is the desperation of the ill-prepared, tentative, or the unwilling candidates. And this latest misinformation campaign just proves that.
